The 22^nd Annual College Bowl Pool

Greetings and welcome to the College Bowl Pool’s 22^nd Year!

Given the large number of games – and in order to give everyone a chance 
to submit picks --, we’ll start a little later this year, beginning with 
the Heart of Texas Bowl on */December 27./*Once again, we */will 
/*include the National Champion Game.That means entering one of the four 
playoff teams as a title game winner (Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, or 
Washington) and assigning points according to your own tolerance for 
risk.Here’s a reminder on how things work …


This is a confidence pool.Pick the winners of each bowl game and weight 
your confidence accordingly (i.e., 25 on the game in which you have the 
most confidence down to 1 on the game in which you have the least 
confidence).*/All entries must be submitted to anrklein at gmail.com BEFORE 
“Bowl Pool” in the subject line of your message. _/*


Two other notes:/Don’t pick in order/ (e.g., chronologically from 1-23 
or 23-1.)That is not in the spirit of the game!


I am sending this message to players from previous years and other 
potentially interested people (or at least those for whom I have an 
e-mail address).Please feel free to forward the message to others who 
might want to play.


The pool is for pride and charity.NFL Pool players already have “paid” 
through a gift to the Devin Shafron Memorial Fund, which is now managed 
by the Chicago Community Trust.(And if you haven’t paid, this is an 
excellent time to send your check.)The Fund is a foundation established 
by Phyllis Shafron in memory of her son, and our friend, Devin.Its 
purpose purpose has been to provide new books for Chicago public school 
libraries. The foundation has raised tens of thousands of dollars and 
donated books to dozens of schools in Devin’s memory.There are several 
schools that have plaques in honor of The Pool’s contribution.If anyone 
would like more information about the foundation, or how to make a small 
contribution as a “fee” for the pool, let me know.
